Hey friends.

I mean Brilliantians I am back with some amazing problems which are generally asked in the RMO-INMO level examination .I am sharing the image of the paper containing the questions.

Please try and if possible send the solutions

.Also it would be great if you all participate in sharing the questions from your own. I would also be sharing problems based on NSEP level. Thanks

Dont forget to share and like this.............

Question 1\[\begin{align} x &\equiv 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 \pmod{7}\\ x^3 &\equiv 0,1,-1\pmod{7} \end{align}\]Assume that either of \(a,b,c\) is a multiple of 7.

Then obviously \(abc(a^3-b^3)(b^3-c^3)(c^3-a^3)\) is a multiple of 7.

So now WLOG assume that \(a,b,c\not\equiv 0\pmod{7}\).Then \(a^3,b^3,c^3\equiv 1,-1\pmod{7}\).There are \(2\times 2\times 2=8\) different possible cases corresponding to the different values of \(a^3,b^3\) and \(c^3\) modulo 7,which are: \[\begin{array}{c|c|c|c} \text{Values modulo 7} & a^3 & b^3 & c^3 \\ \hline \text{Case 1} & 1 & 1 & 1 \\ \hline \text{Case 2} & -1 & -1 & -1 \\ \hline \text{Case 3} & 1 & -1 & -1 \\ \hline \text{Case 4} & -1 & 1 & -1 \\ \hline \text{Case 5} & -1 & -1 & 1 \\ \hline \text{Case 6} & -1 & 1 & 1 \\ \hline \text{Case 7} & 1 & -1 & 1 \\ \hline \text{Case 8} & 1 & 1 & -1 \end{array}\]

Observe that,because of the symmetry of the expression,Cases 3,4,5 and Cases 6,7,8 are equivalent.Therefore,we only need to check Case 1,2,3 and 6.Simply evaluate the cases to get that \(abc(a^3-b^3)(b^3-c^3)(c^3-a^3)\equiv 0\pmod{7}\;\forall \;a,b,c\in \mathbb{Z}\)

Question 8(i)Let the roots be \(a,b,c,d\).(Note that the roots are positive).Then: \[\begin{align} p&=-(a+b+c+d)\\ q&=ab+ac+ad+bc+bd+cd\\ r&=-(abc+abd+acd+bcd)\\ s&=abcd \end{align}\] \(pr-16s\geq 0\implies (a+b+c+d)(abc+abd+acd+bcd)\geq 16abcd\) which follows by applying AM-GM on each term.

I couldn't understand;what does the variable "a" denote in Q 8(ii)?

Question 9We shall analyze 2 cases.Case 1Either of \(a,b\) is even.WLOG let \(a\) be even.Then \(ab(a-b)=45045\) is even.But 45045 is odd,contradiction. Hence no solutions exist in this case.

Case 2Both \(a,b\) are odd.Then \(a-b\) is even.Therefore \(ab(a-b)=45045\) is even,contradiction.

Hence no solutions exist.

question 11 given 34x=43y =>34x+43x=43(y+x) =>77x=43(x+y) now 43 does not divide 77 hence x+y contains 77 i.e-11*7 hence x+y is not prime.

Log in to reply

That does not exclude the possibility of x+y being odd but not prime

Q13 The sum of the digits of any number formed using the given conditions is 1 + 4 + 9+ . . . . + 81 = 285 = 3(95) which implies the number is divisible by 3 but not by 3 squared which is 9. Therefore any number formed using the given conditions is not a perfect square
